Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord. (Hebrews 12:14 NKJV)
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!” No one can see the Lord in His holiness unless one is holy. We are to be holy as God is holy. All the doctrines we received provide us the means to be holy and righteous in our manner of living. The Lord is the God of peace. He approached us, made a Covenant of Love with us, and by His grace, we were made holy. We were then separated from Him by our sins but are now in an intimate relationship with Him. Bonded by love with each other, we continue to partake of His holiness until we become His perfect image as His sons and daughters. We are now at peace with Him and with each other in His House, His Most Holy Church. Our hope is to see the Lord in His Second Coming face to face. Now, we see the Lord as we experience His kindness every single day. While we wait, let us continue to aim for perfection, in unity of our hearts and souls, and strive to live in peace and godliness.
